Media Literacy Is the Message
Burniske, R. W.
Educational Perspectives, v38 n2 p46-49 2005
If educators listen carefully to the voices from the classroom, they discover the importance of teaching students how to "look through" the lens of information and communications technology while simultaneously "looking at" technology in a critical fashion. By making time for this deliberate oscillation educators enable students to become critical readers of print and electronic media. In this article, the author outlines his perspective on the need for media education in schools and offers his commentary on the articles presented in this issue.
